Hi,

Previously, I ordered another lace system from them that I found to be not suitable. The colour did not match and the density was too little: https://www.superhairpieces.com/mens-toupee-m116m-7x9-swiss-lace-poly-back-in-stock-mens-hairpiece/

After that, I recently got this hair system from superhairpieces.com and wearing it for 1.5 months now: https://www.superhairpieces.com/hd105-m135-8-x-10-french-lace-in-stock/

The only issue with the new system is that the knots are not bleached and slightly visible at the hairline. My hair dresser already reduced the stock density a bit and I think it is ok now. A classic side-parted business haircut is what I picked so far. What do you think?

It's a nice style, suits your head shape. If it were me, I wouldn't be fully exposing the hairline. I'm sure no one would know that you're wearing a system, but they would be able to tell something was up.

What I do to have an exposed hairline is I take a small object like a toothpick or the end of tweezers, go behind the hair at the hairline and slightly bring them forward. That way you have a exposed hairline but the hairs are brought slightly forward giving you an even more undetectable hairline - while being exposed. I hope that makes sense. Your hair looks great though, good color, blending, and cut.

Thanks a lot guys for the feedback!

I am still learning to style it and trying out different products at the moment. Generally, I apply an argan oil mist on it after washing/shower while the hair is still wet. This helps with combing and eliminates tangling. Then I add a leave-in conditioner and comb all hairs backwards. For that, I only use a wide tooth comb. After that, I blow-dry the front and press it down with a small comb. The small comb has a 'stick' at the end that is good for the method Jbalding mentioned on going behind the hairline and pushing them forward a bit. After the styling when the hair is about 70-80% dry, I apply some hair spray to the front.

I've read over here that hair spray dries the hair out and damages it. In my limited experience so far, I found that not the case. However, I think it's because I only apply a little spray and comb it out of the hair at the end of the day.

Recently bought some clay pomade and tried out styling like the guy in this video:
The clay pomade works well and is not as sticky and shiny as gel pomade.

Yeah oils and pomade work great. You essentially need them - if you leave nothing in the hair it gives a wiggy appearance which is unfortunate, but something to note.

Do you mean water-based pomades, or wax-based ones? I like the latter better but only use w/ UTS as I feel applying to lace would just ruin the bond.

Can you get away with some grease in lace?

I have no issues with the bond using pomades/oils/conditioners. Im not rubbing it directly into the base just the hair. I use water based just because most pomades are water based, havent tried wax but im sure that works fine too.

Good color match and style. I wear mostly the m116 as density a bit less. Question. Did you cut the A hailine contour of the stock piece as it seems to me more like a C shaped contour.
